Dynamic Deacons is a weekend seminar that provides an in-depth motivational look at the work of a deacon. The goal is to help men become more confident and effective as leaders. As a result, they will enjoy their jobs more, become better at them, and be less susceptible to burnout.
Whether veterans, rookies, or hopeful candidates, Dynamic Deacons will give your men the knowledge and tools they need to succeed. If they aspire to become deacons, this seminar will provide them with a clear path for preparation. If they are newly appointed deacons, it will help them sprint out of the starting gate and make the most of their early days. If they are experienced deacons, they will find it useful for reflecting on their calling and renewing their ministry.
Aubrey Johnson, the facilitator of these seminars, preaches for the growing Old Hickory Church of Christ in Old Hickory, Tennessee. Aubrey is a frequent lectureship-speaker and a regular contributor to the Gospel Advocate Magazine. His background in communication, biblical studies, local ministry, and leadership make him a unique and credible voice on the subject of church leadership.
A special option is also available for wives of deacons and other church leaders. We call it, "Leading from Beside: The Softer Side of Leadership." These sessions offer encouragement to ladies who work behind the scenes to support their husbands and their ministries. Lisa Johnson, a minister's wife for over forty years, delights participants with her personal experiences, joyful spirit, and down-to-earth teaching style.
In my 53 years here, this is the best program we have had. No wasted time.
Thank you for all the work and study on deacons. Your material was helpful, relevant, practical and inspiring. Winnie and I are so glad we got to hear you all three days.
This seminar is also for the seasoned servant. It serves to remind us that we are all in the people-business. The material was well arranged and well presented.
Aubrey is well-informed and well prepared. He brings to his presentation freshness, energy, and directness. Those who listen carefully will be encouraged and challenged. Topics in his seminar cover a wide-range of concerns of deacons. It offers much more than a review of qualifications. It is designed to renew and recharge.
Aubrey, thanks for a great "Dynamic Deacons Seminar." Your presentations were biblical, informative, and practical. Your interaction with our men was priceless. It was obvious you did spade work for your presentations. Our deacons were richly blessed. Their comments were positive. Some have even suggested you return for a second week-end. May the Lord continue to bless your local and brotherhood ministries.
Every congregation would benefit greatly from this seminar which should be repeated every 3 to 5 years! Aubrey Johnson has firm knowledge of the subject matter and knows how to present it. He has dedication and enthusiasm for building leaders to fulfill the mission of the church. He generously shares helpful outlines and information including an expansive book list.
